Ridge. This is a beautiful single fold formed copper bracelet cuff. It is made from raw 18 gauge copper sheet metal. A technique called fold forming was used in which the metal was annealed, folded, unfolded and hammered then repeated many times to achieve the desired look. This particular cuff has one straight fold ridge down the length of the cuff and one that is in the center as well... they have been polished to a beautiful shine to allow the copper to glow warmly against the contrast of the patina. I heated this piece several times to achieve a lovely patina with hues of deep purple, along with underlying orange and rose and a gorgeous iridescence type sheen that is accented with the gold of the copper. The contrast on this piece gives it a very organic, simplistic, minimalist and earthy feel. The edges were then sanded and smoothed...and the entire cuff was buffed to bring out a nice satiny appearance. This piece is darker in color with copper highlights.

Cuff measures 1.25" wide and is 6" long. The opening is approximately 1" wide and the bracelet is adjustable. It can be gently shaped to fit most average sized wrists comfortably from 5.5" - 7.5". Perfect for any look or wardrobe. Original one-of-a-kind.

The cuff will also be lightly coated with Renaissance Wax to help maintain its brilliance and patina, so that it will not fade over time. Renaissance Wax is extremely high quality and used by museums, galleries and professionals worldwide for the preservation of their precious pieces! It forms a durable, transparent, and lustrous protective coating that will not discolor. If you would prefer to have your bracelet patina naturally over time and do not want Renaissance Wax applied to it, please let me know in the notes at checkout.

Copper can be used to stabilize and to balance the flow of blood within the body; helping to increase circulatory functions when necessary. It has been used in the treatment of arthritis, bursitis, and rheumatism, and to stimulate the metabolic processes. Copper conveys the messages that there is no need to seek love or to constantly search for life, and that there definitely is a need to seek and release all of the restrictions which one has installed within the self. It emits a philosophic energy, free of orthodoxy and bias.

Because of coppers physical properties (conductivity, malleability, resistance to wear and corrosion) it is believed by some to have healing properties. Some believe that copper will stimulate the flow of energy in the body thus increasing blood flow and easing the pain of arthritis and rheumatic diseases. It is still highly debated today whether this is scientifically true. Back in the 1970’s, there was a large movement of believers that included new age healers who subscribed to these beliefs. Copper is representative of Taurus and Sagittarius astrological signs. In addition to those, copper also represents Earth/Fire elementals, the Sun and Mars, the "number One" and the "Base and Sacral" Chakras.

I love creating one-of-a-kind adornments rich in design, texture and color. All items are created with passion and attention to detail using sometimes rare or unusual, but always high quality materials, components and techniques.
